The suave New York celebrity publicist Jake Phillips (played by John Stamos) wants to put the brakes on his fast-paced life in ‘Jake in Progress’. After years of flings, he wants the real thing and be a one-woman-man. There’s just one glitch – he can’t be can’t tied down. Jake is constantly on his toes saving his clients from career-ruining situations. Jake is the go-to guy for everything. But in the bargain he lands himself in impossibly ridiculous situations. He also has to play the go-between for his shrew of a boss Naomi and the staff/clients. Where is the time for love? So when Naomi tries to hook him up with her photographer sister Kylie, he has the door slammed on his face right on the first date! Kylie happens to be just one of the girls he had a one-night-stand with and never called again. Jake has to make Kylie come around but foiling his plans is her ex-boyfriend, the nutty Patrick, who will make life hell for Jake every instance he can. Finding the perfect woman is work in progress for Jake in this rib-tickling series.

Three guys Adam, Mike and Ethan have been buddies since college and now in their 30s, they are all at different stages of life. Mike (David Denman) is a lawyer and a family man looking for a few moments of ‘me time’ once in a while. Adam (Nelson Franklin) has just moved in with his crackerjack of a girlfriend Callie and is soon finding out the big difference between a girlfriend coming over a lot and a girlfriend who has moved in. Ethan (Kris Marshall) is the footloose and fancy-free perpetual bachelor who is very charming but finds the proverbial all the fish in the single pond are fast being taken. Watch their different lives intertwine and their moments of friendship, love and infuriation all at once will make for the most humorous experience.
